September 2013 Cuneiform records has released STATIC MOTION (the title track of our upcoming album) on YouTube.
The video was produced by Nordhang Film and shot at the band's rehearsal room in Zürich.
About the CD, Anil Prasad (innerviews.org) wrote "I'm honored to have written the liner notes for Static Motion, the upcoming release by
SONAR on Cuneiform Records. It's truly outstanding music with a deep story to tell. Releasing in January 2014. I think you'll find it
to be one of the most intriguing instrumental albums you've encountered in a long time."
